Conflicts with SeaWorld

Before you bash me for being a hypocrite about going to SeaWorld, let me tell you how I took the opportunity to do some investigative reporting and see the damage for myself.

Freedom for Tilikum

Dawn Brancheau and Tilikum

A few weeks ago I watched a documentary produced by CNN titled Blackfish. It followed the story of Tilikum, the largest orca held in captivity. Former SeaWorld trainers shared their experiences of working with Tilikum and the treatment of other orcas in the aquatic theme park. It was not a pretty story.
